Fox Sets Mob Doctor End Date, Pushes Touch Season 2 Back Another Week

Fox is tweaking Touch‘s return date as well as scheduling the apparent series finale of The Mob Doctor.

Touch — which was originally set to launch Season 2 in late fall, and then was moved to Feb. 1 — will now return Feb. 8 with a two-hour premiere.

Also, the network has confirmed that final salvo of The Mob Doctor‘s 13- (and likely only 13-) episode freshman run will air Saturday, Dec. 29, Monday, Dec. 31, Saturday, Jan. 5 and Monday, Jan. 7 — all at 9/8c.

Officially, a Fox rep says no decision has been made about a second season for Mob Doc — but the writing is on the wall. After starting out soft and only getting softer, the freshman drama’s ratings have ticked up the past several weeks, though its total audience still barely broaches 4 million, while the demo rating hovers just above a 1.0.

  • Absolutely love Mob Doctor!! Was very surprised to hear it was being cancelled. I really hope they do change their minds and KEEP the show. I loved it when it came on after Bones which is another favorite. Even if they have to change the night/time I would still keep watching. Please reconsider and KEEP MOB DOCTOR!!

  • Mob Doctor is a great show. I am completely shocked that FOX plans to cancel it. I hope they reconsider.

  • I can’t believe they’re considering or have decided to cancel the Mob Doctor. What’s wrong with Fox? Finally a smart show, a cast with great chemistry and they want to cancel. I guess if it doesn’t have “vampires” why bother. I loved the show from the start and it only has gotten better. Think it over people, right now Fox doesn’t have much, don’t fix what isn’t broken.

  • I didn’t watch Mob Doctor originally, but stuck around after Bones one week and really enjoyed the show and it was nothing like the previews! For some reason Fox doesn’t like to properly promote shows then they just abandon them when we become interested – Good Guys, The Finder, Lie to Me…

    Instead of giving the quality shows a chance, they just put on more Gordon Ramsey crap and promote Touch like it’s the second coming. I really like Keifer Sutherland, but Touch is really NOT touching me at all.

    Maybe I just have bad taste in TV, but there have got to be a lot of other watchers with non-reality, non-Touch TV taste!

  • Please keep the Mob Doctor!!! Its a great show that just needs a chance. This is why people don’t watch new shows because you get invested then they cancel it.

    • I second that, FOX sucks!!!

  • My wife and I are very unhappy that Fox decided, without giving The Mob Doctor a chance, canceling the show!! We’ve been hooked since the season premiere! We only tune into Fox for Bones and have this show a shot, and ever since, been looking forward to every episode! Now that this is being cancelled, we will watch Bones, and maybe The X Factor and that’s it for us watching Fox!!! At least we have SVU (for the 14th year) and Chicago Fire on NBC! I guess in order for a show to make it on FOX, someone has to be screwing someone!!

    BAD CHOICE FOX!!!!

  • Wow, ANOTHER great show that is going out the window. FOX seems to butcher all of the shows that are actually great shows. Do they have a fear of failure that they keep the crappy shows and get ride of the good shows!!!!!

  • Well, after watching this finale, I definitely think we can attach “SERIES” to it and not “season,” unfortunately… I enjoyed tonight’s series finale, regardless if it was premature and untimely. Good job to everyone who worked on this show up to this ending – I’m glad we atleast got a proper ending instead of a 1-season-show that has no closure…

  • Mob Doctor,Made in Jersy- Any show that does not have horror blood and guts sex is droped because people seem to be programed that way theese days. Good shows are being droped,without a chance to get going. Fake reality shows I Hate but that is what stupid people like. let them get some real reality but they are just cowards. Even the contestents are fake. round up the reality show junkies drop them on a desert island or combat zone with only a knife and tell them to survive for a year. No one will do it. No prize Just prove you are a man. No hand picked contestents. just ordinary people. no cameras. 1 year later if they survive just say good job and send them home.who will apply.

  • Cannot believe they are canceling.Mob Dr one of the best new shows on television and the best show on Fox. I never watched Fox until this show was put on the air. They don’t give shows. Long enough for people to start to notice them. Although I thought it started out good from the first few episodes. Why is it they cancel everything that has some depth to it. Will not watch Fox after the last episode of this. Every show they have on is ridiculous. They actually had something really great started with Mob. Dr. And they decide to cancel it stupid unintelligent decision. There are people over the age of 20 that watch tv and would like something. Other then Glee to watch on this network. As for Touch with Kiefer Sutherland he has to be one o the worst actors tin Hollywood. And that show is so stupid. I tried to watch it and it was so boring I turned it off and I I usually always give something a chance, but it’s awful. Wish the network would listen and give Mob Dr another season. Possibly put it in another time slot since it wasn’t doing well where it was. It’s a great show!

  • Are they cancelling all the shows that show violence? There is more violence in the reality shows then on any of the so called violent shows, start cancelling those. Especially the Kardashions.

  • STUPID IS STUPID DOES, Thats why Fox will never be a BIG player in the network war.
    Either put it back on or let another network have it.

  • I just watched the entire season of Mob Doctor on my computer. I think it’s a great show and should not be cancelled. The story line was great and the acting was superb. Let’s try to bring it back Fox and replace some of those ridiculous reality shows.

  • We just found out about Mob Doctor with the last 4 episodes and love it! Maybe it was not promoted right to begin with. We just stumbled on to it and can’t wait for each episode. I hate that it has been cancelled.

  • I like the mob dr. But what’s left with Grace killing him. What’s left with the south side what’s left with al since the other gang put the hit on him. There’s really nothing left the writera killed the series with the first season.

  • I agree I fell in love with the mob doctor. I’m so tired if these terrible reality shows!!!!! Yet something genuine promise and intrigue gets the axe. Just like good guys, pushing daisies, etc. I don’t see the appeal of American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, etc. why do these shows continue year after year! I personally don’t feel that my segment of the television market is being represented.

  • Alas….. It’s gone. She’s on her way to Mexico with her boyfriend after overdosing Constatntine with insulin, flatlining him(after finding out he was her dad….(. I guessed that in the first show…). Bye bye Mob Dr. It was fun while it lasted.

  • I really loved the Mob Doctor. I think Fox made a huge mistake cancelling it. I can’t stand Touch. That show is so boring. Bring back The Mob Doctor. That show had an awesome cast and always had a great storyline.
